Platform Engineer

London, England, United Kingdom · Tech


At Gousto, we're looking for someone to help us disrupt the online food industry. You will be helping people to discover, buy and cook delicious food at home without the hassle of recipe books and supermarkets, all with no food waste. We’ve grown rapidly since our founding in 2012 and following another large VC investment we’re now scaling from a small development team to a larger tech organisation delivering across multiple scrum teams and multiple channels (web, iOS, Android).

To support this growth we’re transitioning to a micro services architecture and to do this properly we know we need to invest in a sophisticated CI and deployment pipeline. This will enable developers to quickly and easily deploy new services, delivering new features into the hands of our customers as quickly as possible.

As the first platform engineer to join the team you will be responsible for “paving the way to production” for our developers. This means supporting and enhancing our existing deployment pipeline as well as carrying out R&D into new technologies like AWS Lambda to understand how these can be utilised to manage our environments going forwards.

Our challenges include


The role would suit someone with Cloud based sys admin experience or someone with a software development background with a strong interest in building a platform engineering skillset. You should have a Computer Science or similar background and be looking for a high growth role, responsibility and ownership.
